About the Owner
About Jo Mackay
I am a mother with 2 young children, age 9 & 12 and a very busy husband! I gave up work with Procter and Gamble 9 years ago to spend time at home with the children. I have loved being able to spend so much time with them. However, with both children now at school, I was keen to start working again. I initially enjoyed managing two of our own holiday properties in the Italian Lakes which we bought in 2008 and 2009 following our first visit to the area in 2007. However, I have now started to manage holiday homes for others, not just in the Italian Lakes, but elsewhere in Italy through my website - I carefully select each property and ensure that I maintain that personal but professional service level that I believe holidaymakers are looking for.

Why Jo Mackay chose Lake Maggiore West
These are great apartments, offering exceptional value for money. Newly built in 2013, they offer holidaymakers a contemporary living space for their stay in this beautiful part of Italy.
What makes this apartment unique
There is a fantastic communal swimming pool at the property and the apartment grounds are spacious. It's only 2.5 kilometres from the lakeside but the location on the hillside ensures guests have wonderful lake views to enjoy as well. It's an ideal location for people looking to sightsee during their trip with easy access to the main roads.
Saturday changeover day preferred in peak season but we aim to be as flexible as possible to meet guests requirements.

A great day out is the Lake Maggiore Express by boat up to Ascona and Locarno where you take the '100 Valley' train into the Swiss Alps.
